The Emoji Movie Named Worst Picture At Razzie Awards

The Emoji Movie

The Emoji Movie won awards in four categories at the 38th annual Razzie Awards.

The movie dominated this year’s awards by winning the award for Worst Picture, Worst Screenplay, Worst Screen Combo and Worst Director for Tony Leondis.

The Emoji Movie is the first animated feature in 38 years to earn the top dishonour.

“Leading this year’s list of movie-misfires is the emoticon-based, talking poop opus,” the Razzies said in a statement announcing the recipients.

The annual awards bestowed on the worst of the movie business were announced on Saturday in their traditional spot, the day before the Academy Awards.

Fifty Shades Darker had two wins, with the award for Worst Supporting Actress going to Kim Basinger, and the award for Worst Sequel.

Mel Gibson received the award for Worst Supporting Actor for his rebellious father role in Daddy’s Home 2.

Tyler Perry received a Razzie for Worst Actress, even though he only played a female character in the film Boo! A Madea Halloween.
